What's Your Blood Type?

Recommended Posts

A Dr. recently told me that people with O type blood are more prone to wheat/gluten/casein allergies and conditions. Those with O blood types do better eating meats and vegetables. My whole family (hubby, kids, and myself) are all O+. I'm just curious to find out what blood type other celiacs are. If you are an O blood type, do you find it easier to process meats and veggies? I had a horrible time with meat before going gluten free. Now it seems to be the easiest thing on my tummy. I feel bloated and yucky when I eat too many grains/flours and do ok with dairy, though a lot of it upsets my tummy.

Crohn's like GI symptoms, Multiple Sclerosis like Gluten Ataxia, Arthritis like joint pain, Myositis like muscle weakness, DTV like swelling, Chronic Fatigue, weight loss, hair loss, vision changes, anxiety & depression. I thought I was either dying or I had completely lost my mind!

Gluten Free since May 17, 2008

Started feeling like a new person after only 3 days gluten free and it is 100% worth LIFE!

Daughter and I are both O+. So is my mom. We all have food allergies, but daughter is the only one allergic to wheat and gluten. My mom has arthritis though and finds that wheat and nightshades make her arthritis worse.

O negative. Mom was O negative, Dad was A Positive and then became A negative. :o Doctors still scratch their heads over that one, but he was a hot ticket item as a blood donor! :D

I believe my gluten intolerance comes from my mom's side of the family.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

I'm A+

I did peruse the "A" book for the Blood Type Diet which says that A's are supposed to eat very limited amounts of wheat, dairy and meat. So, I have Celiac, don't do well with dairy and most days don't care if I eat meat. But some of the vegetables it says not to eat I don't have a problem with, so I'm not sure you can absolutely label all A's, or any blood type, as being intolerant to something...

Very interesting thread. Thanks for starting it!

O neg for me.

"More prone to" would be a true statement if the percentage of type O with celiac is even slightly higher than the pecentage of any other type blood. Those psuedo-quantitative word cause problems.

O- for three of us all celiacs.... Dad was a+ not sure what Mother is.

O is the oldest blood type & we are considered the meat eaters not grain eaters. We too never really cared for much meat but now we eat lots of meat & veggies & we all feel better !

I get less migraines when I eat meat. I think we need more protein than other blood type but that is just my thought......

I also wonder if it's because 0+ is the most common blood type in America.

Tangentially, my mom is going nuts trying to figure out who the heck I inherited this from. We usually blame gut problems on my dad's side of the family, as they aren't around to defend themselves. ;)
